#LOTRO: Helm’s Deep to Launch November 20th

November 18, 2013


It looks like the power outage crisis at the Turbine datacenters is behind us. All game servers are back up and running.

Turbine has posted to their forums the new plan for the Helm’s Deep launch which was supposed to happen today.

All LOTRO Game Worlds and Websites are now available. Thank you for your patience while we worked to resolve issues that resulted from a power outage at our data center. In order to provide the best possible experience for players, we will be delaying the release of Helm’s Deep until Wednesday November 20th.

As a result, we will be extending our Helm’s Deep pre-purchase offers as well as the 100% XP boost and Bounder’s Bounty events until the 20th as well.

Wednesday, November 20th is the new day!

Everything will go back to as it was before the outage and those looking to turn in their bounders tokens will still have a chance to do so. Also if you had slight regret about not pre-ordering Helm’s Deep, there’s still time to buy!

    Oh, great! Tuesday: my day off. From WEN to SAT: 12 hour shifts for me.
    So… my poll: skip the launch day. :(

    Turbine is having the worst luck with Expansion launches. Last year, didn’t they have issues launching Riders of Rohan? I wish them the best as releasing something of this magnitude is no easy feat.

    Last years issues were down to them biting off more than they could chew in the time they first allowed. So the main game wasnt ready and the instances were shunted back even further.

    At least this time around it was more out of their control if the datacentre was hit by a power outage. Unless of course it was them forgetting to put 50p in the meter or feed the gerbils.
